No Trespassing

Certain trees took a stand, before the rains came, but you,  you that refused to sign the petition.  Here you are, arms reaching out in surrender.  Too late! It’s over, and just look at what you’ve done, tipping over like a drunk in a bar, taking the rail down with you.

I photographed you in your throes, with rain clouds looming that went unnoticed. Your struggle had me in its grip.  The eyes of the sky darkened; your visage changed in that moment, and tears from the sky began to fall

I put the camera away and closed the gate behind me

Taking a Stand

Since these photos were taken a little over a week ago, some rain has come to Northern California. Blades of green grass can be seen in the fields, offering some hope.

    It would have been nothing if not for the “big picture” at the end. Nicely done!

      Thanks, Madhu. The jet stream that directs the direction of the storms coming in off the Pacific is doing its old dance again, sending storms farther north into the Pacific Northwest 😦
      Maybe next week rain will return to us.

    sad to see a tree go down, think of it as recycling life … great captures and story Angeline, so glad you have rain 🙂

  6. I saw where you got some rain up that way. Here in San Diego, it was reported that we had the driest winter in recorded history.

      We finally did, the day I took these photos, then this past weekend on Sunday we had a wonderful full day and night of rain. Of course they tell us it’s nowhere near enough. But it sure was nice to have the wet weather. Hope you guys get something soon.
